Where available, the IOM Drone imagery, obtained by HOT and taken in late 2012, early 2013, is the most current imagery. Bing imagery, although slightly older, is much more comprehensive and available at a high resolution in most areas of the country.

Be sure to use the Imagery Offset DB before using any imagery in Haiti.
